Why promote employee fitness?

Your workforce is your most important investment. Studies show that employees are more likely to be at work and productive when they are feeling well. For you, fitness program savings can add up to tens of thousands of dollars every year, impacting:

  • Reduced Employee Absenteeism
  • Lower Worker’s Compensation Claims
  • Lower Company Insurance Premiums
  • Increased Employee Productivity
  • Improved Employee Morale
  • Improved New Employee Recruitment

Whether you provide health club membership as a benefit, or simply improve access and information for your employees, you stand to gain as much as they do.

A study at the University of Iowa showed that out of a random sample of 185 employees, 57% were converted from high-risk (cardiac) to low-risk in a six-month period through an exercise and education program. Medical claims for that group dropped by thousands of dollars.

The American Journal of Health published a study in 2001 that showed that for every dollar invested in wellness programs, companies saw a four-dollar return. The same study showed that sick days were reduced by 28%.

Your employees want to be fit and healthy. Many are already working at things like weight maintenance or loss, and they could use a little help getting there. By contributing to their healthy lifestyle you will empower them to be happier while you will reap the benefits. A healthy employee contributes to a healthy workplace.

Is my company big enough?

Do you believe that only large corporations have fitness plans? Data doesn’t back that up. The Kaiser Family Foundation reports that 63% of companies with three or more employees offer some form of employee wellness program, and 60% of those companies extend the programs to family members. It also makes sense that the fewer employees you have, the higher your percentage of return stands to be. There is no such thing as “too small” when it comes to benefiting from employee fitness.

What can Fort Washington Fitness do for my company?

We can tailor a membership package to fit your company’s needs, or we can offer incentives for your employees to sign up on their own. If you have an existing wellness program that doesn’t include a fitness element, we can snap our program into place with your existing initiatives. Working together, we can come up with a program that fits your needs, however large or small.

The Gym

Fort Washington Fitness is located next to Woodward Park in the RiverView Shopping Center. Our facility has more than 23,000 square feet designed to optimize the member experience. We are not a typical gym – our interior is a beautifully crafted Spanish-style space, a resort atmosphere that is a far cry from normal industrial gym designs. We find that our members take great pride in coming to such a fantastic facility, and it effects how they perform in their workouts.

Our team also takes pride in providing a very family-friendly atmosphere. We know you by your name, not just your number.

For serious athletes, there is nothing more important than the quality of our equipment, and we keep those athletes happy. When that’s our baseline, it means that everyone gets great gear.
